Jamaica Project

Jamaica Project - child

This partnership between George Brown and Jamaica’s Early Childhood Commission has resulted in an improvement in how 94% of Jamaican children under the age of 5 years of age learn and develop. Through knowledge exchanges between faculty at George Brown’s School of Early Childhood and policy makers in Jamaica, the project has enhanced learning in the areas of reading, math and science.

Highlights of the Project

In the past 13 years, the Jamaica Project has had many successes. Below are just some of the key highlights:

  • In 2003, George Brown’s School of Early Childhood was awarded a 5 year project in Jamaica from the Association of Canadian Community Colleges, funded by the Canadian International Development Agency.  In 2008, the college was awarded a further three year project to continue our work in Jamaica.
  • In 2008, George Brown faculty helped develop a key best practices document that was distributed to more than 3,000 early childhood education facilities island-wide and in 2011 a Best Practices DVD was presented at a national gathering to compliment the print document.
  • To date, over 171 students have travelled to Jamaica, and 44 students from Jamaica have travelled to Toronto to work in George Brown lab schools
  • 12 George Brown faculty members have spoken at conferences in Jamaica, toured schools and met with many community and government leaders in Jamaica
  • Students and faculty have raised funds through various initiatives to bring teaching resources and materials to children and teachers in Jamaica.
